A plugins group is basically a set of plugins for users to easily understand and consume. Customizing server assemblies will be easier and a plugins group can be installed as a regular plugin by using deploy command. There are 8 groups for different distribution with Web Contaniner such as Tomcat and Jetty. We take Tomcat as an example here and introduce each plugin group and what plugins are included:
